Stunning Footage of Ireland’s Lighthouses
Visually spectacular the series features stunning footage of Ireland’s lighthouses and reveals how Ireland became a world leader in lighthouse engineering. Often working in hostile and treacherous natural locations, our lighthouse engineers and builders used great ingenuity to achieve what seemed practically impossible.
Using archive footage and meeting some of the lighthouse keepers, Great Lighthouses of Ireland illustrates our dependence on the sea, our battle with the elements, the engineering, history, science and above all the people behind these extraordinary buildings, and the pivotal role they have played in historic events.
